Attendance is expected, but not required. Showing up regularly to practice helps student-athletes develop as riders, gain the most from their participation on the team, and build relationships with their coaches and teammates. We understand that summers are busy for everyone!
We encourage students and coaches to indicate on TeamSnap whether they will be at practice or not. That helps us to prepare appropriate ride groups.
